Lol, America is not a peaceful nation. What notion gave you that?

America was born in blood. (The Revolution, anybody?)

Just commenting on that,

On the issue of the military decreasement? Hm..I'm undecided on this. Though a smaller, more elite force may be useful, like it was stated, what happens when that small force needs to fall back to the main fleet, but that main fleet is not there to fall back on?

Aren't those SSGN Conversions already 20 plus years old already?

Yes they are, those were made on the 4 oldest Ohio class subs.

what i would do is have 50 carrier battle groups, at least few thousand ships there for 50 carrier battle groups lol, now each flagship (the carriers) will name after a state.
but 50 carrier will make us broke lol, unless we are still in the cold war

Its pretty hard for America not to be enemies with countries like Iran and North Korea, who brainwash their population from childhood to hate America.

LoL That 50 Carrier battle group idea is not that bad although it would cost. It would be just like the good ol days of WWII when we had over 2 million men in the Navy and thousands of ships.

Because many Muslims (Iran) believe America is the 'Great Satan'. And North Korea hates America because we kicked its a$$, before the Chinese got involved. And we 'are keeping the two Koreas from re-uniting'.

Yeah, and I told you why. They don't like us, just because. Hmm that sounds a lot like Europeans...

North Korea almost threw U.S forces out when there wasn't that many U.S Forces in Korea. Well it was mostly the U.S and South Korea. Kim Jong-il told Secretary Albright that North Koreans are taught from childhood to refer to Americans as 'those American bastards'.

Having foreign enemy helps to take the atention away from the domestic problems (Bush prooved it too
) . THere is a possibility of contra-revolution long ago in Iran, that is the reason for creating enemy. The same thing other muslim countries - they are supporting Palestinians against Israel - until the muslim terorists fight Izrael they cannot fight their goverments...
And the whole North Korea(and former east Europe) repressive comunistic system is based on existence of foreign enemies. The comunism should create paradise on Earth, so how could Kim explain why the people need to eat rats in order to survive? It must be all US and otherimperialists fault, that's clear...

But there would need to be considerable time spent in brainwashing the previos generation not just this generation..

There is no communism there anyhow...

Yeah, tell that line to the people on that 747 that got splashed off Long Island. Or the Air-Bus of Iranians that got plunked into the Gulf. I think the Navy proved without a shadow of a doubt "what it could do."

It's not the equipment, it's the people and the short time allowed to make a crucial descision.

I know that sounds fecisious, but 9/11 was eithered allowed for neferious reasons or was an anomally that worked due to it unbelievability at that time.

I believe in wartime situations the US Navy is quite leathal on many levels.
